Here are the MUDGIRL 2021 health measures to ensure your safety above all else, while still creating a race you’ll love to be part of.
These measures may be modified according to the evolution of the health situation. They are based on guidance from the CDC and different local Public Health officials as of January 2021.
BEFORE THE RACE
On multiple occasions we will send an email to all participants detailing the course of action for the event and highlighting the main federal and local health instructions. This information will also be available on our website; www.mudgirlrun.us
Any participant who experiences symptoms of Covid-19, or has been in proximity to someone with the virus, should NOT, under any circumstances, show up for the race.
ON SITE INSTRUCTIONS
Spectator permissions at each event varies on local venues and cities. You can find the current details for each race by pressing "MORE INFO" on our website main page.
All of our staff (and volunteers) will wear masks at all times. Masks for participants are required from the point you leave your vehicle until you return to your vehicle, except not while you’re actively participating on the course. We do, however, recommend wearing a mask on the course.
In order to avoid unnecessary contact, we ask you to respect physical distancing at all times (as far as possible, six feet minimum), and contactless payments will be available at the parking lot entrance, at food trucks, and at the store. To increase safety, you will not be able to try on clothes in the store.
The village area will have strict safety rules: mandatory temperature checks, foot traffic will be one-way, and masks will be mandatory for everyone (not mandatory while competing on the course) .
There will be hand sanitizer available throughout the site and course. Also, toilets will be cleaned periodically throughout the event.
You will not be allowed to check-in more than 45 minutes before the start time indicated on your entry ticket
DURING THE RACE
It is essential and mandatory to respect your start time, no change may be made on the day of the race. You should only be at the start area at the time indicated on your entry ticket, not before or after.
The waves will be launched in small groups of 25 people, or fewer, every 3 minutes from 8:30 am until 2:00 pm.
On the race course, traffic will be one-way and waiting areas will be marked out before the major obstacles to avoid any congestion.
We strongly encourage wearing a mask throughout the race, but it is not mandatory.
All these measures are established in order to protect you and comply with public health instructions. Regardless of the health situation, we consider it essential for everyone to have access to athletic events and the possibility of challenging themselves physically. To us, this is a necessity for the well-being of our society.
